If you wish to get away from the hustle & bustle of city life, this is the place for you. Gozo Green Living is situated in a quiet, bucolic area on the outskirts of Qala, yet at 10-minutes’ walk from the main square & all village amenities, at walking distance from some of Gozo’s most enchanting beaches, Gozo’s Stables and scuba diving facilities. Because of the sea views and continual proximity to the sea, hiking in this area is a breathtaking experience. Here you can enjoy homemade, zero-mile organic breakfasts as well as "detox" for we’re transitioning to becoming an entirely green household. We're striving to use mostly locally grown food, straight from the farmer or shepherd. Besides eating organic, you will sleep in comfortable beds with bed-sheets in pure cotton, linen or natural hemp, & washed with eco-friendly, atoxic detergents that don’t irritate your skin or that of your children’s. To wash dishes & clean the house we only use natural or homemade detergents. So our household is especially suited for allergy sufferers & children. In this bucolic neighborhood surrounded by fields, you will find farmers, nice villas with gardens & pools, as well as a shepherd with his goat and sheep. This allows us to buy really fresh food right from its producers. Some of the more beautiful Gozitan beaches are near here! The neighborhood is also located close to many Gozitan highlights. You can walk or bike to some of the island’s most enchanting beaches, including Hondoq bay, Dahlet Horrot, San Blas Bay, and a few hidden gems that can only be reached on foot. They're all 25-40 minutes by walk from our house. We can provide instructions to help you find them. Horse riding is five minutes on foot from our house Another exciting way to discover the island’s best kept secrets is by riding a horse. If you, like us, enjoy riding or would like to learn how to ride a horse, Gozo’s stables are located at five minutes’ walk from our house. Around Qala it is also possible to practice scuba diving and rock climbing. The house is ten minutes away from Qala square where there are several restaurants, pizzerias, a pub (where you can also enjoy live music), a pharmacy and a health &organic food shop. Victoria, the capital town, is 20' away by bus, the ferry 15 minutes. Our names are Silvio and Patrizia- We have just moved to Gozo from Italy to complete greening our lifestyles and try becoming as self-sufficient as possible as far as water, energy consumption, & food are concerned. Indefatigable green activists, we are the founders of a multimedia web magazine on the nuts and bolds of living green. To flesh out the principles advocated by our green magazine we've come to live on Gozo where, hopefully, we are going to build our eco-utopia: an offgrid, bioarchitecture house with a backyard garden where to grow organic veggies. We're fond of art and traveling, especially on foot - hiking and trekking - and our rooms are full of some of our travel memories as well as artworks - drawings, pictures and paintings, as Patrizia is a photographer and an artist. We're still exploring the island on foot and guests are welcome to join in the exploration. Passionate cinephiles, we like viewing films and documentaries - some by us, as we're film-makers too - and share the viewing with friends and guests alike. We really enjoy meeting people from all over the world through our B&B activity, so our guests can occasionally share an Italian meal with us just by paying a small fee. The old farmhouse where we live has been renovated but retains the charm of the old building, thanks to the bucolic neighbourhood where it is located, a rock-walled room and an outdoor patio. In the morning, you’ll wake up to the sounds of birds singing, goats baaing, and cocks crowing. Our breakfast can be enjoyed indoors in the Old Room from 7.30 to 9.30 a.m. Our Italian breakfasts feature: - a cup of organic Italian espresso or of latte, either with organic milk, rice or soy drink; organic wholegrain cakes or bread & marmalade, all fresh, homemade and sweetened with brown sugar. Local seasonal organic fruits will complete the morning menu. We are convinced that eating organic, fresh (local) and whole food is a must do to keep healthy. Not only is organic whole food non-toxic: because of the way it’s grown, it’s much more nutritious. 0-MILE FOOD We're striving to use as much as possible locally grown vegetables and fruits, cheese from pasteurized milk straight from the shepherd in our neighborhood and locally produced oil in order to provide more delicious as well as nutritious breakfasts with no preservatives.
